I had my session on Friday! I pushed myself to speak a little bit more, answer a greater number of my tutor’s questions questions in Farsi. My tutor also spoke more in Farsi; I  had a harder time with longer sentences but found that I could get the gist of her tangents if they were shorter and simpler. Aside from my session where I worked mostly on listening and speaking, I studied on Mango for a little bit. I usually do more but I was exhausted after work.

новость номер один: я все-таки побывал в японии!! правда, если учесть наши сегодняшние реалии – виртуально. жена подарила мне на свой день рождения виртуальный тур по 京都, а вернее по району 東山区 (хигашияма-ку).
для тура мы воспользовались платформой amazon explore. интересно, что общение с экскурсоводом устроено в полуторастороннем порядке: мы его видим и слышим, он нас только слышит. под это…

My brain is sometimes just:

Yeah, I know, we just read a text in Japanese, and the questions about the text are also in Japanese, but I want to answer them in French please.

A quick shout-out to every single Bangla speaker (Bengali or not) that has ever said something kind and supportive or offered corrections and enlightening bits of information to me, no matter how big or small.

I want you guys to know that learning Bangla and connecting with Bangla speakers on here has been nothing but a positive experience for me. I’ve read that some people learning other languages have had to deal with negativity from speakers at times and I honestly have never had to face that. In fact I’ve come to learn that Bangla speakers are as sweet as the language itself and are a joy to be around.

Every message, comment and ask I have ever received from you guys has been filled with nothing but warmth, gentle guidance and respectful curiosity, and I feel welcomed and supported. So I just wanted to say thank you to all of you because learning a language is never easy for anyone. And it makes the world of a difference to be exposed to friendly people and helpful teachers. Idk I’m just proud of the community on here I love you guys and I am grateful to you. I never would’ve learned as much as I know now without your help and encouragement. I can confidently say that Bangla learners are in good hands and are well watched over.

That’s all! I hope you’re staying safe and that you and your families are doing well 😌💕

Salut tout le monde!

J’ai voulu améliorer mon français en écoutant ou en lisant plus en français. Eh bien, jusqu’à présent, je l’ai fait en regardant Brooklyn 99 en français sur Netflix. Et en regardant les youtubeurs français jouer à des jeux vidéo. C’était amusant de voir des joueurs français jouer au jeu Phasmaphobia.

Translation:

Teaching myself Japanese & I feel like I will never get there. I want to understand it all within a few hours & I know it doesn’t work that way. Reading it has gotten easier though, I will admit that. I suck at writing kanji (that’s an understatement) & sometimes I become tongue tied. I wish I could just pack up everything and move there that way I’d be forced to understand it daily. Tasukete kamisama XD Any one out there have any tips on learning languages? I am open for some tips. Along with Japanese, I am brushing up on my Spanish and have picked up some Latin & Chinese. Also, just a LITTLE bit of Korean and Arabic. I want to keep my mind busy, obviously lol

Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years’ War

One of the longest wars in the human history was actually a bloodless war where no single shot was fired from any of the warring sides. This theoretical state of war existed between Netherlands and Isles of Scilly for three hundred and thirty five years. Isles of Scilly are a small archipelago off the Cornish Peninsula of England. During Second English Civil War (1648-1649), when Britain was in turmoil due to infighting between the Parliamentarians and the Royalists, Britain lost control of the islands. Taking advantage of the Civil war, the islands started to harbour pirate ships. The pirate ships used to launch menacing attacks on Dutch merchant vessels which was the lifeline of Dutch economy at that time. In 1651, the Netherlands declared war on the Islands and Dutch Navy despatched a fleet of 28 battleships against the Islands to capture the ports occupied by the pirates.

However, before any shot was fired, British government took control of the Isles and promised to resolve the pirate crisis. Dutch Navy recalled its fleet; nonetheless, the Netherlands technically remained at war with the Isles of Scilly. It has been claimed that due to obscurity of how a nation could declare war against a small part of another nation, Dutch politicians never took initiative to declare peace officially. In 1985, Roy Duncan, historian and Chairman of Isles of Scilly wrote to the Dutch Embassy in London and revealed the myth that the Islands are still at war with Netherlands as no peace treaty was signed after the declaration of the war. Diplomats scrutinised the historical records and found the myth correct. In 1986, the then Dutch Ambassador visited the islands and signed a peace treaty. The peace was officially declared on April 17, 1986 three hundred and thirty five years after the war was declared.
